Mira Schor @mira_schor : He was impeachable at the Oath of Office so this headline has always existed but needed 3 years to develop @nytimes [posted on Instagram Thursday, December 19, 2019] 
I have a long time habit of reading @nytimes from back of first section to front after glancing at cover page for headlines, pictures and placement — since I don’t read Hebrew it would have to be either a deeply atavistic practice or just the order in which I take in general information, editorials, then details if I have time. Or maybe it makes news bearable. Today I came first to p19 headline which really echoes how Watergate unfolded in the press (watch All The President’s Men). I atavistically could practically hear the teletype machine clack in the background. I whipped back to the cover & at first couldn’t find the corresponding story. It’s there but with a blander, less pressing tone @the_newyork_times

If in the aftertimes people huddling around a 🔥 discover this statement about why we turned back away from energy efficient lightbulbs they may wonder why didn’t we of this time lock this guy posing as “ president of the United States” in the looney bin #impeachtrump and #25thamendment#miraschordrawing

@nytimes Headline Writing Sure Is Fraught But In My Book both “firebrand” and even “crusade” can sound inspiring. Self-hating? racist? xenophobic? white supremacist? Goebbels reincarnated? . All more accurate
